The paper deals with the existence of positive solutions of the problem -? u=up in O, u=0 on ?O, where O is a bounded domain of $$\mathcal{R}^n$$ , n= 3, and p>2. We describe new concentration phenomena, which arise as p? +8 and can be exploited in order to construct, for p large enough, positive solutions that concentrate, as p? +8, near submanifolds of codimension 2. In this paper we consider, in particular, domains with axial symmetry and obtain positive solutions concentrating near (n-2)-dimensional spheres, which approach the boundary of O as p? +8. The existence and multiplicity results we state allow us to find positive solutions, for large p, also in domains which can be contractible and even arbitrarily close to starshaped domains (while no solution can exist if O is starshaped and $$p\ge {2n\over n-2}$$ , as a consequence of the Poho�aev's identity).

    The presupposed advantage of symmetrical objects over asymmetrical objects was investigated in an object matching task, using accidental and non-accidental viewpoints. In addition, the accidental views could be symmetric or asymmetric. When two non-accidental views were presented, symmetrical...

    Let M be a 3-dimensional submanifold of the Euclidean space E5 such that M is not of 1-type. We show that if M is flat and of null 2-type with constant mean curvature and non-parallel mean curvature vector then the normal bundle is flat. We also prove that M is an open portion of a 3-dimensional...

    In this paper we prove a very general result concerning solvability of the resonant problem: Δu + λ[sub κ] u + g(x, u) = h (x); u = 0, x ∈ ∂ Ω, which immediately gives three generalized Landesman-Lazer conditions. The most interesting application of the general result is...
